AKB48 singer Yuko Oshima is appearing in the first of a new series of TV commercials for Asahi Soft Drinks' Wonda Coffee Morning Shot series. AKB48 singers have been doing ads for Wonda for the past three years.
In the new commercial, which began airing on Wednesday, Oshima, 24, plays an office lady who chats with a colleague outside the elevator at their office before starting work. They discuss how drinking the canned coffee will give them energy to get through the day. The new series of ads will use the office environment for its setting with different AKB48 singers alternating in each ad.
Last year, about 90 members of the mega-popular group appeared the Wonda Coffee Morning Shot commercials.© Japan Today
